This is a good manual TT. It sold for $199.00 in 1976. I currently use one as a transcription table. The speed adjustment pots are finicky and need cleaning or sweeping occasionally. Better sound than my Technics (better mids, no high roll off) and just as bulletproof. Tonearm looks like a Rega R200 clone with better anti-skate (spring) and less bad resonance than most S shaped Japanese OEM tonearms from this era. Same tonearm used on 530 and early 570. Box-type plinth could benefit from dampening and deadening but it's pretty nice as is.
